The $12.5 million project is to revitalize a former landfill into the Cape Fear Regional Soccer Park, a sports complex at 205 Sutton Steam Plant Rd..

In 2019, Wilmington Hammerheads FC donated 64 acres valued at $3.4 million value to the city an in 2016 residents voted to approve a $38 million parks bond to earmark $10 million for the project.

In May 2021, the city unveiled a $1.3-million sponsorship deal with fintech firm nCino, with naming rights awarded to the company and a requirement for the city to build a synthetic turf field.

Earlier this year, the Hammerheads Youth FC donated $22 opted to donate $225,000 to the project to ensure it had adequate lighting. The city first put the project out to bid to construct 11 multi-purpose fields and restroom facilities in May but received fewer than three bids. After re-advertising the project in June, T.A. Loving Co. was the lowest responsive bidder out of two total proposals.
